A Big Classic “Thank You”
As our Club’s representatives on the South Gippsland Golf Classic Committee, Ian Nunn and I would like to express our heartfelt thanks to all of our staff and volunteers who made yesterday’s 4-ball event another outstanding success. We are in the enviable position of receiveing the thanks and praise that the players heap upon us about the state of the course and the excellent work done by our volunteers.
With a capacity field of 256 players to accomodate, everything needed to be well coordinated and exectued for things to run smoothly. It requires a true team effort and is a tribute to you all that we were able to pull it off so successfully.
I would particularly like to pay tribute to our hardworking groundstaff for the way they presented the course. Dylan, Denis and Tom (DDT) certainly know how to “kill off” the opposition when it comes to course presentation. It is a pity that after having started at around 4.30am they are too tired to sit with us and hear the glowing comments that flood in from the players after their round.
Quite a few of our members took the opportunity to play in the event, some performing very well. We particularly congratulate Libby Seebeck and Julie Howard on their success in winning the B grade section of the Ladies event. Not a bad result for a couple of “fill in’s”! Another local pair of Fay Quilford and Marg Griffiths finished second to Libby and Julie. Well done girls!
In the Men’s section, Chris Indian and Brendan Simon continued on their merry way to finish third in A grade, while Bruce Cathie partnered a visitor, Bruce Cairncross to finish second in B Grade. Well done to you guys.
We look forward to making this day another success next year.
